Carolinas WPA

Carolinas WPA was formed in 2003 to encourage communication among community colleges, colleges, and universities, public and private, in North Carolina and South Carolina. Members represent a variety of writing programs, including writing centers, writing across the curriculum programs, first-year writing programs, professional writing programs, and undergraduate writing majors/minors. Carolinas WPA enables regional writing program administrators and teachers to share concerns and issues related to writing instruction and to the administration of writing programs.


Carolinas WPA hosts two conferences each year and a CCCC event most years:

  • Meeting in the Middle, a one-day conference in Charlotte, is next scheduled for February 17, 2017.
  • The Fall Conference at Wildacres is scheduled for September 18-20, 2017.
  • Watch for more information about Carolinas WPA at CCCC 2017.

Visit the Conferences page to learn more about both conferences.


Anytime of the year, you can connect with other regional writing program administrators through the Carolinas WPA listserv. The Listserv page explains how to join.
